Manchester City rocked by Claudio Bravo Achilles rupture

Share

Manchester City have announced that goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Manchester City could be left with just one senior goalkeeper for the rest of the year, following news that Claudio Bravo has been hit with a serious injury in training. But it is a short-term solution to his issues, and the 29-year old Dutchman will have to return to the Camp Nou eventually.

Bravo tweeted: 'No matter how bad it looks today, life goes on, and tomorrow will certainly be better'.

Bookmakers have been suitably impressed as Liverpool are now 10/3 second-favourites to win the league this season. I saw that in the warm-up from [Wayne] Hennessey practising and thought, wow, this is going to be really hard .

It's nowhere near as detrimental as Kevin De Bruyne's injury lay-off but Manchester City have reportedly been hit with another injury blow today.

His potentially lengthy absence would mean 20-year old Daniel Grimshaw, promoted to the first-team squad last season, would have to step up. The Belgian will be out for between two to three months.

Despite the transfer window closing earlier this month, City are allowed to apply to sign a goalkeeper on an emergency loan deal given they are now short in that department.

The injury leaves City with just one senior keeper in Brazil global Ederson with 20-year-old Daniel Grimshaw now set to become his understudy.

City sold Angus Gunn to Southampton during the summer, while young prospect Aro Muric is on loan at NAC Breda.

"He will fly out to Barcelona for further tests on Thursday where the extent of the injury will be examined".
